Located on the site of the former Schrader Iron Works company, a structural steel business that closed in 1993, The Ironworks Lofts are a great example of the neighborhood’s transition from industrial to residential use. The Ironworks lofts are in the heart of the SOMA neighborhood, convenient to freeway access, shopping (Whole Foods is four blocks away and a Trader Joe’s is practically around the corner) and numerous lounges, bars, and world-class restaurants.
The Ironworks lofts building is a steel-frame building. There are four typical layouts for the residences in the building, all of which are on two levels and have oversized mezzanines. The loft homes were all originally designed and delivered with an upstairs walk-in closet and washer-dryer hookups. Many homes have two walk-in closets. All homes have at least one parking spot, and many have two parking spaces.
Lofts on the north side of the building have nice views of the downtown skyline, and many of the loft homes offer outdoor space. Scheinholtz Associates designed the interior loft layouts and finishes, and the home were delivered to the original buyers with 5” wide-plank hardwood floors, decorative gas fireplaces, and CAT-5 ethernet wiring.
Residents and guests are greeted by a spacious lobby on Harrison Street with a polished concrete floor, and the building hallways are atypically wide and feature back-lit floor-to-ceiling glass brick wall. The building does have an elevator.
